Favorite Cherished Heirloom Jewelry Subscription Box Review January 2020
My box arrived with a note regarding general advice when estimating sterling jewelry values as well as individual notes for each of my pieces. I think their estimated values are probably pretty accurate, especially since sterling isn’t as cheap as it used to be.
I am pretty thrilled you all wanted this reviewed, especially since I love vintage jewelry and pretty much have to wear sterling or gold these days due to metal sensitivities. Per reader request, we did order this box anonymously. Like all of you, I was so incredibly curious as to what might show up in such a unique subscription, so let’s get to it!
Polished Quartz Ring
This ring is unmarked and very obviously handmade. I think it has a lot of personality! I really like oversized stones on thinner bands, so this is right in line with something I would wear. I will say that this ring is too big, but still wearable. I believe this is likely a rose quartz cab too, due to that palest pink hue.
Although it is very loose, I like this ring!
Shell Inlay Cuff Bracelet
You all know I go weak for a cuff. This one is pretty ornate and reasonably heavy, meaning there is a lot of silver going on here in terms of weight. The center is a shell inlay design of a pink flower. The shell pieces around the petals are of multicolored abalone. I don’t wear lots of stuff like this anymore, though I used to be all about a more boho jewelry look. This piece is unique, and arguably well made, but I am not sure I would ever really wear it often. Since I used to love this sort of thing, I plan on hanging on to this to see if maybe this spring I lean a little more free-spirited style-wise.
Teenage Megan would have LOVED this.
Verdict: This month’s Favorite Cherished Heirloom Jewelry has just two pieces, but they were both very nice. The ring is much more along the lines of something I would wear pretty often, and it is delightfully heavy and well made. Add in a one of a kind patina and I am sold! The cuff is also quite pretty, but I am unsure of how it would fit into my overall style. There were only 2 pieces this time, but this box does advertise between 1-3 depending on the pieces selected. Of course, I do think the odds of liking more of your box improve with more items, but I understand why they sent just 2 rather heavy pieces.
I do feel the need to stress that this box is totally random. I have no idea of knowing what will show up, and the only customization I can offer is my ring size. If you are someone who is picky about jewelry, this isn’t the box for you. If you tend to really love vintage pieces and want more sterling silver in your jewelry box, give this one a try, but remember to keep your expectations realistic and your mind open! It is certainly something totally different than my other boxes.
This was part of my wrap-up last month and I feel like these thoughts are pretty important to include again in such a specific and mystery-type subscription.
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No. Every box is different and a total surprise. You can expect between 1-3 pieces each month.
Value Breakdown: This box costs $35.00 a month + free shipping, which means that each of the 2 items in the box has an average cost of $17.50.
